Re: Upgrade tutorial and Roadmap side-discussion

Big time, I'm its biggest fan. It's the best DE I've ever used. My consolation is that BL Helium does 95% of what KDE does, while using half the RAM. It's my other session and it has saved the Plasma session more than once here on sid.

Re: Upgrade tutorial and Roadmap side-discussion

Guys, guys ....

I did not say a thing about "dist-upgrade", can't recall ever using that other than to "test" it.
I have always preferred a clean fresh install.

I have 6 dedicated partitions for installs:

8 will remain "untouched" on sda1 and sda2
10 (clean fresh install) will go on sda6 and sda7 and will not become my "daily system" until fully configured the way I like it.
sda8 and sda9 are still running first version of BL, I think, have not logged in there is a LONG LONG time.

Re: Upgrade tutorial and Roadmap side-discussion

oh good, I was actually wondering how one does upgrade BL. Does the installer overwrite existing /home partition? The way I have installed BL I have done separate / separate swap and separate /home. Is there a way to clean install with preserving existing /home?

Thanks

no need to specifically creating a tutorial just for me now. It's probably something I could google when the time comes and after a back up - safely tinker with.

OK!  A Tutorial In A Nutshell

Re: Upgrade tutorial and Roadmap side-discussion

I wish that there is not any preseeding when choosing advanced installation.  It is a little contradiction to preceed also then.
Without preseeding I can chose to install from my local repository.
It would be nice to get rid of the error "umount: can't umount /media: Invalid argument", when booting installmedia.


The best part of Bunsenlabs is that it is kept simple, with good utils for simplifying managment.

The bl-welcome script is a good one. I think it could be a good idea to after the offer to install lamp, also offer to install dwww.

Maybe also have an offer to add dynamic menus? I saw that the team prefer statich BL menu, but why not offer the addition in the welcome-skript?

Re: Upgrade tutorial and Roadmap side-discussion

We have had the discussion many times about adding things to the welcome script. There will always be someone who wants X, and someone else who wants Y.

There is a balance now between reasonable defaults, and common choices for extras. As you know, you can easily install what you like in addition.

And so the script has changed. The libre-office installation, was moved out. Some disussions have not been implemented like splitting the script, use salt-stack and an GUI för the script.

I was thinking what's best for the targeted users. It's not spelledout but implaied that Bunsenlabs is targeted "Experienced and new users who wants light-weight and easily customizable Openbox desktop, pre-installed to offer a better “out-of-the-box” experience."

Bunsenlabs, wants to lower the thresholds for a good linux session. A balance is newer static. Everything changes in nature and sociaety...

For me, I have an script that automaticalley installs a welth of applications, among them dwww.

I'm not sure what you're on about here, but please open a separate thread if you wish to elaborate. Let's keep this thread to the Roadmap. Thanks!
